What would you like to do?
Every dog is different. Generally speaking, the milk will come in three to four days before the puppy is born although in some, the mother may have milk up to a week befor…e giving birth.
How long after a dog develops milk will they have there puppies?
Yes it is because the puppies drink the milk.
well i guess you have to feed it with a bottle
dogs produce their milk from 2-3 weeks before they have their pups
usually she will produce enough milk if being fed properly. depending on the size of your dog and the size of the litter you need to feed extra and it's helpful to suppl…ement with cottage cheese and offer all the water she will drink. If the litter is larger than 6 pups it can be helpful to offer supplemental feedings to the puppies by buying Esbilac at your local Petco, Petsmart etc...and following the feeding instructions. A mother dog can also stop milk production if she gets eclampsia which is a life threatening condition to her as well as her pups....If her nipples are hard, hot, or your not sure if they are normal or not I would contact your vet.
Well, dogs are mammals. Mammals drink milk from their mother, so the answer is probably yes. I give my dog milk sometimes, and nothing happens to my dog. However, you must not… give too much milk to a dog. A lot of milk might upset the stomach. It is best if you give your dog a little at least 2-4 times a week.
Immediately after birth
If you mean spayed after all her milk has dried up.
If a dog starts to lactate it is usually about 1 or 2 days before they give birth.
puppies should be weened around 6 weeks.
My dog is pregnant and we are not sure when she is supposed to be due and she is leaking milk does that mean she is going to have her puppies soon?
yes, she will deliver soon.
My dog is pregnant and we are not sure when she is supposed to be due and she is leaking milk does that mean she is going to have her puppies soon-?
she is going to reproduce (deliver) soon.
So im pretty sure my dog will have her puppies pretty soon because she is leaking milk but she hasn't stopped eating thou is that normal?
Eating is normal for your pregnant dog. The puppies will get their nutrition from the milk which is supplied by the mother's nutrients.
So I heard that it doesn't necessarily mean that my dog will have her puppies soon when she is already leaking milk is that true?
Length of Pregnancy in dogs is 58-63 days after the breeding. Milk leaking out of the nipples is not necessarily a sigh of impending whelping. Take you dog's temperature twice… a day. Normal temp is 101 - 102 degrees. If the temperature drops below 100 and stays there (around 98 - 99 degrees), then you have approximately 12 hours, or sooner, before she whelps. Another symptom is that she will become restless and start digging around in places & won't have much of an appetite but that is not always true. Wax will appear on the ends of the nipples about 12 - 24 hours before whelping but it is difficult to see. Make sure you have a nice clean large whelping box with clean blankets in it ready for her to whelp in (a child's swimming pool will do in a pinch). Put your Veterinarian on alert in case she has trouble whelping. Once she starts to whelp out the pups, don't let her go longer than 2 hours between pups. If she is straining for over approx. 2 hours between pups, get her to your VET immediately.
